Stargazing and Star Talk with

Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn



 "Capturing the Stars"


Kerry-Ann will talk about her journey of photographing the universe and share stories about some of the amazing objects that her camera has captured.  Her award winning photos have appeared in books, calendars and NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day".  Ms. Lecky Hepburn is a Senior Meteorologist at The Weather Network.


A tour of the observatory and 1.9 meter telescope will follow the talk with stargazing through the big and small telescopes weather permitting.

Throughout our regular season, we hope you'll join us for an evening of telescope observing, space crafts, space talks and tours. On program nights we check out a wide variety of celestial objects, including the Moon, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and more.

We're looking forward to another great season exploring the night sky with exciting guest speakers and special events. Check out our 2014 Schedule to book your  tickets early.


The David Dunlap Observatory is home to a wide range of public viewing nights, special events and educational programs. Visiting the 23-ton Great Telescope is an awe-inspiring experience.
